Buffy turning into Drusilla during Season 8 (imagine that Buffy the Vampire Slayer never ended at Chosen (TV) and it continued onto the Cleveland Hell Mouth, but Buffy returns to the Crater of Sunnydale to make a wish that she was back with Spike at the beginning. Pretty, soon, she is sitting next to him in the car with a purely evil Vampire (OR SO SHE THINKS, IT’S FUTURE SPIKE TAKING OVER THE PAST’S BODY).
And it’s Sunny Dale 1997 right before he crashed into town with his insane sire. Buffy tries to explain that she’s not evil but begins to enjoy the luxuries and freedom. It’s because of Giles and the Scoobies keeping her from knowing that Spike was alive, but died again as he went up against the Circle of Black Thorns. She resented them for the secrecy and Willow only showed up to help Fred in order to keep her out!
Summary: Future Buffy and Dru trade lives, but the real Dru bursts into Dust at the hole where the town was. (PAST Dru and FUTURE Buffy).
Buffy the Vampire Slayer never ended at the Hellmouth and it continued onto the Cleveland Hell Mouth, but Buffy returns to the Crater of Sunnydale to make a wish that she was back with Spike at the beginning. Pretty, soon, she is sitting next to him in the car with a purely evil Vampire and it’s Sunny Dale 1997 right before he crashed into town with his insane sire. Buffy tries to explain that she’s not evil but begins to enjoy the luxuries and freedom. What could be better than having what you want at your fingertips? You could call out and dozens of minions would be at your disposal. You could click and they’d do your every need. She sighed in bliss. “We’ll be home soon and you’ll get to have your way with the Slayer.”
“Can I break her,” she asked in her light slightly exotic voice.
He growled. “And dance on her grave!”
“YES, YES,” she giggled.
Oh yeah, being insane was definitely fun!
And plus, she’ll get to see Angel fall on a stake. Nah, just torture him until the little soul is out.
“I can smell it. All of that power in one small boy readied for the preparation.”
“To stuff out the light!”
“Pretty,” she murmured at all of the demons. “Such pretty bright Red colors… I wonder if we’re invited on the guest list…?”
It was warm. The body was warm. And she was cold. She slid one hand out and a splash of blood dropped against her lip. She swiped it effortlessly. The Ruby Red liquid fell down her chin and stained the White of her dress. She began to whine that it was dirty. Spike told her to remove it so they could get it washed.
‘Jane Doe’ was n*** and forgotten as her dead eyes stared at the ceiling.
Spike stopped a minion. “Hey, care to take care of the body…?”
He knew that his princess loved to play with the dead things as if they were her dolls, but he just couldn’t stand to look at them- their lifeless corpses staring back at him, vacant and blank. He persuaded his Goddess to get new dolls, but sent him away for a few days, ignoring her pleas until he brought her the puppy.
“Treasure Sunshine would you,” he had said.
“M’kay,” she clutched the dog close to her. In fact, it was right on her lap enjoying the petting.
“We’ll be there soon,” he assured.
She wasn’t actually going to kill, just enjoyed being with him again. And neither was he. He had a soul and he wasn’t even from around here, this bizarre time stream he traveled to. He had no idea how he even got to this place or era.
He’s going to have to play along, make Dru think he’s killing when it’s from a dead animal. ‘Oh Spike, I miss you so much, but now, I have my second chance in this bizarre world!’
She grazed her hand along his curls. “Come ere’ pet,” he rumbled. She climbed over him and their lips touched.
Spike can’t deny it. He missed being evil. He missed Dru’s cold but hot personality. He missed her insane laughter when they mayhemed and slaughtered through towns or her claws digging into his spine when they fucked. He was free here- with no worries, pain, and guilt haunting him. No voices of the past breaking him. No sound, just silence. His blue eyes took in her nudene form, her silken skin gleaming in the light. Hours before, he took out the Anointed’s nest, now resting lazily on his elbow.
Buffy couldn’t control it anymore. When she saw the girl, she moved in slow motion before pouncing and grabbing the neck, her jaws snapping around the bulge of her artery, stopping the tortured girl’s pleas for help. This was the only life she was going to end. It was only because she needed the strengths after what Dru had to endure in Prague. She could feel the physical pain almost as if it was a contradiction.
1997 was the year of her loss of innocence.
Spike ran his hand down Dru’s body as he kissed her lips. As he made love to Dru, thoughts of his night with Buffy came back to haunt him. He loved Buffy and desired her, but something inside him couldn’t stay away from Dru. He was definitely torn between the two women: Dru’s evil passion and Buffy’s sexy innocence. It was more than Spike could handle.
After fulfilling his desires inside Dru, Spike pulled out and got dressed.
“What’s wrong, love?” Dru asked him.
“I have to go.” Spike told her.
Spike left Dru alone in the grotto outside of Sunnydale.
“Well, if it’s one thing I can’t stand is to be laid and abandoned!” Dru said bitterly to herself.
Spike showed up at Buffy’s to find her with Angel. Seething with jealousy, he watched as Angel kissed Buffy’s breasts. Spike hid when Angel turned his head, but it was too late. Angel had seen him standing outside the window. Kissing Buffy more fervently, Angel gave Spike a show, as the Spike’s fangs began to show.
Spike took a walk around Sunnydale to clear his head. He couldn’t believe that Buffy was with Angel. “Didn’t their night mean anything to her?” Spike thought.
But all that would have to wait when a group of minions from the Hellmouth began wreaking havoc in Sunnydale. . . . . . .
As Buffy made love to Angel, she had a feeling that came over her as she sensed someone was in danger. As much as she longed to stay in bed with Angel, she just couldn’t…not when someone could be in trouble. So as she got up from Angel’s embrace, and got her clothes on, Buffy made a hasty exit from Angel’s pad and found her way to the center of Sunnydale, only to realize it was Spike who was in trouble.
Something inside Buffy fueled Buffy’s fire as she jumped on the minions and banished them to hell right before Spike’s eyes.
“Buffy!” Spike said surprised to see her.
“Something couldn’t keep me away.” Buffy said as she moved in for a kiss, but a minion that had been hiding from them sprang up from behind Spike and struck him in the heart with a stake, sending Spike straight to hell.
“Spike!” Buffy yelled out. “Noooooooooo!”
Buffy couldn’t believe that Spike was gone. And at the time when she realized it was Spike she loved. Not Angel.
As she walked on through Sunnydale, she ran into Giles who had come out of his store when he saw her out.
“Buffy?” Giles called after her, but Buffy just kept walking, oblivious to the sound of Giles’ voice.
“Buffy?” Giles said when he reached Buffy and grabbed her shoulder.
“Who are you?” Buffy said when she turned around to see who was behind her, not recognizing her trainer.
“Buffy, it’s me…Giles.”
“Go away.” Buffy ranted.
“He’s gone!” Buffy moaned. “Spike’s gone!”
“Buffy, you know that.” Giles reminded her. “Spike died a year ago.”
“No, he died tonight.” Buffy looked at Giles confused.
“No, Buffy, you’re mistaken.”
“But I saw him…fighting some minions.” Buffy explained. “I fought them all off…except…”
“Buffy, whatever you’re remembering tonight…it didn’t happen because Spike couldn’t have been there.”
“You’re wrong!” Buffy said as she tore herself away from Giles grasp.
“Why were they all lying to her?” Buffy wondered. She saw it…with her own two eyes. Spike…fighting the minions…until she fought them all off and banished them all to hell. Except for one. Who was hiding from them. Snuck up and killed Spike. Spike was gone. Her Spike. Gone.
Buffy tried to get Spike out of her mind, but thoughts of their night flashed through her mind. Even Angel’s kiss failed to keep Spike out of Buffy’s thoughts.
“Angel, please, not tonight.” Buffy said as she pulled away from his embrace.
“Buf-“ Angel asked. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing!” Buffy said irately.
“Who is it?” Angel demanded.
“No one!” Buffy continued her ire.
“It’s Spike!” Angel raged. “The bloody bastard has been dead for a year and he’s still got your heart!”
“You too!” Buffy yelled. “Spike was killed last night!”
“What are you saying?!” Angel said in disbelief. “Spike died a year ago!”
“No he didn’t! He died last night! Right in front of me as I tried to kill the minions who were trying to kill him!” Buffy explained.
“Buffy, –“ Angel tried to reason with her, but she ran off.
“Buffy, come back!” Angel called after her.
As Buffy ran off to the center of Sunnydale, suddenly all the surroundings no longer looked familiar to her.
“Where’s Sunnydale High?” Buffy wondered. “Where the hell am I?”
As Buffy looked around some more she said to herself, “I don’t think I am in Sunnydale anymore?”
Back at Giles’ store he had recreated in Cleveland, Angel brought Giles and the Scoobies together to help Buffy.
“Everybody, I asked you hear to discuss what to do about Buffy.” Angel began.
“What’s wrong with Buffy?” Willow asked.
“She’s not herself.” Angel told them.
“What do you mean, ‘not herself?’” Xander inquired.
“Well, she thinks Spike was killed last night, instead of a year ago.” Angel told them.
“Yes, I ran into Buffy to and she seemed confused about that fact too, but when I tried to get her to reason, she ran off.” Giles told Angel.
“It’s as if Buffy’s in her own little world.” Angel said.
“Well, what do we do?” Willow asked with concern.
“We need to find out where Buffy is and get her out of that realm.” Angel explained.
“But what realm is she in?” Xander inquired.
“Somewhere in the past.” Giles said.
“So do we go back in time to find Buffy?” Dawn asked them all.
“Yes. But first we must find Buffy and detain her.” Angel said.
“Detain her? But where?” Xander asked.
The gang headed out to find where Buffy ran off to. Giles was the first to find her lying unconscious under a tree in Cleveland.
As Giles alerted the others that he found Buffy, Giles picked up Buffy and took her off to the store as she called out, “Spike, help me!”
Just when Giles thought he had Buffy, Spike came out from nowhere and knocked Giles on the head, sending him to the ground. He then picked up Buffy and carried her off to his cave to hide out.
Giles came to and looked around when he discovered Buffy to be nowhere in sight. He then made his way to deliver the news about Buffy.
“Giles, where’s Buffy?” Willow asked him.
“She’s gone?” Giles said.
“Gone? How can that be?” Xander asked him.
“I was hit from behind and when I came to. . .Buffy was nowhere to be seen.” Giles told the Scoobies.
“I did find a clue as to who might have taken her. “ Giles said as he showed them the piece of fabric he found next to him when he came to.
“That looks like a piece of fabric from Spike’s coat?” Xander questions.
“It is.” Willow confirmed it.
“So Spike took Buffy? But why?” Giles said, mystified.
“I don’t know, but we need to find Buffy and bring her back to the present.” Xander reminded everyone.
Meanwhile, Spike and Buffy, who was really Dru, woke after Spike brought Buffy to his cave to hide from Giles and the Scooby gang.
“Spike, thank you for getting me away from my so-called friends.” Buffy said, thanking him with a kiss.
“I knew I had to help you and get you away from them.” Spike lied, knowing what he was about to do.
Spike, that is future Spike, was brought to 1997 to bring back Buffy to the PTB. He knew all along that Buffy was really Dru and he wanted revenge for Dru turning to dust.
“C’mon, Buffy, we need to get going.” Spiked ordered her to get up.
“Where are we going, Spike?” Buffy asked him.
“You’ll know when we get there.” Was all Spike said.
“The PTB had better keep their promise to him now that he was bringing back the Slayer”, Spike thought to himself.
